    shimmering spot in pupil

    Sally, my dear friend, has had a lot of eye trauma lately, due to numerous necessary surguries and many intensive exams. She has glaucoma and severe migranieres. The glaucoma exacerbates her migraines and the migraines sometimes cause problems, like hemmoraging, with her eye. These are left side behind the eye migraines and the glaucoma is alco worse in the left eye.

    Now, here is my question: Recently, I've seen a shimmery disc inside (not on but inside) her pupil. The disc looks like a sparkling round sequece that reflects light. It is smaller than the pupil by about 50%. I see it ONLY in her left eye, not in her right eye. I've seen it only after this last episode when the stitch on the phleb came loose and the doctor had to reset it.

    She's asked the Doctor to look at it but I think the Dr was looking on the surface of the eye for a milky white spot. That's not what this is.

    Do you have any ideas? I will research any suggestions. It would also be helpful when she next sees her Doctor to have an image or two to show her, you know, like show and tell. She's not a great communicator so visuals would be helpful.

    Thank you ahead of time for helping me with this.
